    Allergy symptoms as just sneezing and itchy eyes. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. What starts as simple itching and sneezing can turn into something much more serious. As your allergies worsen, your nasal passages and sinuses become swollen and congested. This can lead to a sinus infection. The infected mucus draining from your sinuses can drip into your stomach and, if you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), cause symptoms to act up. And if this mucus drips down the trachea into your lungs, it can irritate your lungs and your airways.
